    All of Blizzard's games (Warcraft I, II, and III, Diablo II, Starcraft) use disks which work on both Mac and PC. But they're the only ones I know of.

    What kind of games?

    If you're talking about some stuff for DOS, I'd recommend looking into VPC or checking out some of the shareware/freeware DOS emulators out there.

    Now, if we're talking about some pretty recent, graphics card-taxing games, forget about it.

    Well, I remember some of the older games that were hybrid. Meaning compatible with Windows and Macs, but the newer ones definately aren't.

    Take a look on the CD covers to find out..

    Myst 4 I know is a hybrid, don't know about 1-3 though. Other then that you pretty much have the entire list in the second post. :D

    Myst 1, 2 and 3 have all been released as hybrids, but I'm not guaranteeing that all of them are (eg. my copy of Myst 1 is hybrid, but I've seen a Windows-only version).
